Wireless (Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG) network problems using FC5 kernel 2.6.17


I have a Gateway 6520Gz laptop with Centrino Mobile wireless technology. My wireless network hardware is Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 2200BG. My OS is FC5 with kernel 2.6.17 I upgraded from kernel 2.6.15 thinking that if I ugraded my kernel my problems with wireless will be all over. I cant get the wireless to work. Can anyone point me in the right directions on how to get this working? Can any one point me to a previous (legitimate and relevant) post or website that can show me the way? Thank You!

Why not tell us exactly what you did to configure the card? What access point are you connecting to? Are you using encryption? Are you using wpa_supplicant? What errors are you getting (have you checked the logs, e.g. /var/log/messages?) And what have you already tried, to solve this problem? (besides upgrading the kernel)

You need to grab the v3.0 of the the firmware from:

http://ipw2200.sourceforge.net/

and extract the firmware to /lib/firmware/

the new kernel is compiled with version 1.1.1 of the intel driver and requires the updated firmware.

Hope this helps!

I started out with installing FC5 kernel 2.6.15 last week. Then I thought if I simply selected from the desktop drop down menu, system, administration, network and then add a wireless device on the hardware tab this should work but then I found out that the wireless adapter I had (Intel Corporation Pro Wireless 2200BG) was not located in the drop down menu. So I went straight to google and found "http://www.thinkwiki.org/wiki/Ipw2200". From there I learned that I needed:

1)ipw2200 driver: 1.1.0
Following the instructions from the above referenced link I got the following results below:

ERROR: ieee80211.h not found in '/lib/modules/2.6.17/include'.

You need to install the ieee80211 subsystem from http://ieee80211.sf.net
and point this build to the location where you installed those sources, eg.:

% make IEEE80211_INC=/usr/src/ieee80211/

will look for ieee80211.h in /usr/src/ieee80211/net/

[root@localhost Desktop]#

I'm using a d-link 524 access point with encryption to connect my laptop to. The wpa_supplicant I'm not sure about.
This is all I have done, this is all I know to attempt to correct the wireless issue.

The only suggestion given to me thus far was to update the firmware and place it in the appropriate directory. I did that but as can be seen from this lengthy thread I have tons of errors happening and I dont know why they are happening after I followed the instructions.

So now what do I do? Did I skip any steps? Forgot to do something else? Someone please take on this challenge and let me know what's wrong.

Just to confirm, did you have wireless working with 2.6.15 kernel?

Under Fedora Core 5, the ipw2200 driver is included within the kernel, to activate all you need to do is grab the appropriate firmware version and extract to /lib/firmware and then restart.

With the newer kernels 2.6.17 Fedora started including version 1.1.1 of the Intel driver (for ipw2200/ipw2915 hardware only, and NOT the ipw 3945 hardware) which requires v3.0 of the Intel firmware. Again, all that "should" be required is extract to new firmware to /lib/firmware and restart.

To confirm what type of wireless card you have try doing a lspci -v and determine what wireless hardware you have. Here is a portion of my lspci output

Code:
06:02.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 2915ABG MiniPCI Adapter (rev 05)
        Subsystem: Intel Corporation Unknown device 1040
        Flags: bus master, medium devsel, latency 32, IRQ 58
        Memory at bc007000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=4K]
        Capabilities: [dc] Power Management version 2
Hope this helps!

Wireless was not working when I was using kernel 2.16.15 but then again I dont think I was placing the firmware in the lib/firmware directory. I will try again using kernel 2.6.15 then using kernel 2.6.17 using your advice and then let you know how it comes out.


Provided below is my output from lspci -v. This is my confirmation that I have PRO/Wireless 2200BG hardware.


02:04.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 2200BG (rev 05)
Subsystem: Intel Corporation Unknown device 2701
Flags: bus master, medium devsel, latency 64, IRQ 11
Memory at e0208000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=4K]

What firmware version do I need to place in /lib/firmware for kernel 2.6.15?

firmware v1.2 or firmware v2.0 or firmware v2.1 or firmware v2.2 or firmware v2.3 or firmware v2.4 or firmware v3.0

What firmware version do I need to place in /lib/firmware for kernle 2.6.17?

firmware v1.2 or firmware v2.0 or firmware v2.1 or firmware v2.2 or firmware v2.3 or firmware v2.4 or firmware v3.0


The url http://www.thinkwiki.org/wiki/Ipw2200 suggest that I need not only the firmware but also the ipw2200 module and the ieee802.11 stack. Do I not need these as the website suggest and in what directories should I replace them if I did in fact need them?

For the 2.6.15 kernel use v2.4 of the firmware.

For the 2.6.17 kernel use v3.0 of the firmware.

All you need is the firmware and should not need any other files, all of the other files are included within the kernel already.

ok I placed firmware v2.4 into /lib/firmare and did # tar xzvf ipw2200-fw-3.0.tgz then restarted the laptop. I opened a terminal as SU - then typed "iwconfig eth1" and got back eth1 no such device.

So then I went to the desktop drop down menu and selected System--->Administration----->Network. Under the Devices tab I see eth0 which is active (this is my LAN). Under the Hardware tab I see eth1 (Intel Corp. PRO/Wireless 2200BG) and eth0 (Broadcom Corporation BCM4401-B0 100Base-TX).

When went back to the Devices tab I selected new, wireless connection, forward, Other Wireless Card, and this is where things are confusing.....I dont see an adapter that matches Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG. Only intel related adapters I have are EtherExpress Pro 100B, EtherExpress/100, Ether Express/1000 gigabit. So where do I go from here?

Okay, lets start from the beginning....

To confirm which kernel version are you currently running?
Can you post the contents of dmesg?

I'm having the exact same issue, have v2.4 of the firmware in the firmware directory and can't seem to enable the card. I keep also getting that the /build directory is not present. Just thought I'd let you know that I'm working on the issue as well. If I come up with anything (don't get your hopes up....<---Linux Noob) I'll let you know.

I went back to windows but I will make an effort to get wireless working on linux again I think there are clues in the ipw2200 driver: 1.1.0

/lib/firmware instructions

What worked for me (FC5, 2.6.17, 3.0 ipw2200 fw) is copying the *.fw files from /lib/firmware/ipw2200-fw-3.0/ to /lib/firmware; then rebooting; even so modprobe ipw2200 + ifup eth1 failed as before; but modprobe -r ipw2200; modprobe ipw2200; ifup eth1 then worked. None of that makes particular sense to me, and I haven't read the source code, but there it is. (It's in there somewhere; keep trying.)

Hi all
i solved this problem before
you just need large the kernel memory size (2.6.15) from 4k to 16 kB and then copy the firmware to
/lib/firmware/ and then reboot your machine and you will get it work
